Stepping Outside This Winter - Senior Care Transportation Services

You’re not the only one who’s been finding it difficult to get out of their PJs and slippers this winter. The chilly mornings and early evenings can make leaving a cosy warm home rather uninviting. But aside from the less than desirable appeal to get out and about during the colder months, everyday tasks that used to seem simple, such as travelling to and from the grocery store or attending medical appointments, can become increasingly demanding on an ageing body. That’s where our senior care transport services can help.

Senior Care Transportation Services

Whether your loved one has turned in the car keys or carting groceries to and from the bus stop has become too difficult, it is never easy watching someone you love struggle to get outside as much as they used to. Home Instead is committed to helping seniors retain their independence, without being restricted by transport options. Our professional CAREGivers remove this limitation by assisting your loved one to and from their destination safely.

Our incidental transport service is so much more than just a taxi service. Our friendly, reliable CAREGivers will also support your loved one with anything they require during their outing. Falling temperatures during the wintertime can pose further risks for seniors, from colds and flu to increased risk of falls from slippery surfaces. You and your loved ones can have confidence they are in safe, trusted hands every step of the way. 

Just a few instances where our transport services can assist with everyday duties include:

  • Doctor's appointments
  • Shopping
  • Groceries
  • Hairdresser/barber appointments
  • Escort to hospital and home again
  • Prescription collection
  • Social outings
  • Family events

Our CAREGivers will take the hassle away from catching public transport, assist with carrying heavy shopping bags, help with stability whilst walking and crossing roads, medication reminders, general companionship, bathroom trips and any other assistance they may require. 

We believe quality of life doesn’t have to slow down just because a person is getting older. Whatever your loved one’s outing may be, we will ensure they arrive to and from their destination safely and in a timely manner. Please call your local Home Instead office to find out more about our senior care transport service this winter.
